i've got you, babe

I considered calling in "saw my shadow" this morning, but decided that my supervisor probably wouldn't buy the idea that I'd turned into a groundhog since she saw me last. So I'm at work. It's OK, as- like most days- I feel fine once I'm showered and dressed and warm. But the getting-out-of-bed part of the day is just so hard.
I recently watched the Disney version of Cinderella for the first time in many years. In all the thousands of times that I watched it when smaller, it had totally never registered with me that the last time we see Lucifer in that movie, he is plummeting from an extremely high tower window. And suddenly I found myself feeling sorry for the creature. Sure, he was a villianous kitty, but he was a kitty nonetheless, and I'm a sucker. Lame.
Went down to College Park last night, as one does on Tuesdays, for music and good company and refreshing beverages and no Boston Cream Pie. There was also a lack of games this time, but there was discussion of socks as sleeves and hats as shirts, there was the scariest author photo ever (Stephen King on the back of a hardback of Misery), and there was analysis of a Thomas the Tank Engine picture book. We're pretty good at nonsense 'round these parts. Especially when there's the possibility of amusing or confusing random bystanders.
Random bystanders? You were confusing me, also.
Excellent! We get bonus points for confusing people who already know what to expect.
I know what to expect, yes, but that doesn't make me any less confused.
I actually feel bad for the stepsisters sometimes. They were evil, but I think it was mostly the fault of their mother. Plus, they were bitter because they were ugly. And that's kind of sad. They have this overly demanding mother who almost certainly expected her daughters to be as pretty and bright as she is, but they can't do a thing about the pretty and the constant need to please the mother made them sort of... stupid... maybe... I'm stretching... but... I haven't seen the movie in a while, okay?
I definitely feel bad for Lucifer, though! Alot of kitties are evil, but they should not plummet to their doom(s)!
In Into the Woods
, the stepsisters were beautiful but evil. In every other version I've seen / read/ heard about, the stepsisters are ugly and evil. I think I like the ItW
version of them better. Sheesh.
Then again, I prefer the ItW
Cinderella when she's all smudged and bespectacled. So maybe I'm just WEIRD.
"Yet more proof that slightly unattractive people are
Sometimes I think that, in the Disney movie, they're not so much evil as catty and vindictive.
stephen king does not approve!!
(but sir topham hat's quite okay with it...)
